Accenture has announced INR 48 Million in Grants to three of its non-profit partners to expand their efforts to help persons with disabilities acquire the skills and job they need to emerge and succeed in a twenty-first-century economy.
As one of the non-profit partners of Accenture, Anudip will use this grant to expand its Specially-Abled Vocational Education (SAVE) programme customized for physically and visually challenged persons focusing on digital skills for employment opportunities.
Awarded as part of Accenture’s Skills to Succeed global corporate citizenship initiative which aims to equip about 3 million people by 2020, this donation will help Anudip to support persons with physical and visual constraints to overcome barriers and access IT-based vocational skills training for employment.
“SAVE’s mission is to empower people with disabilities for sustainable livelihoods” said Dipak Basu, Founder and CEO of Anudip Foundation. “The extension of our partnership with Accenture is really exciting because it will help us bring hope in the lives of thousands of especially marginalized people.” For the Accenture News Release story, click here.
